I am loving the classes I’ve started taking at Kit and Clowder. I cannot believe how much my coloring has improved in one week!!
I hope you are all doing well. I ALMOST have my voice back so I am going to to a “jean freda” tomorrow LIVE.
Now, I don’t know about you guys but around my house I am always claiming that every phone charger/iPad charger etc. belongs to MOI. Yes, I know they probably don’t all belong to me but sure seems like they are MINE. Oh my… I sure sound like a spoiled one don’t I? LOL
Anyhoooo Jean Freda (my sister) had seen these somewhere and she figured it would be a good project for my Weekly Jean Freda Challenge. If you aren’t familiar with my little (used to be very bratty) sister, her name is obviously Jean Freda and she LOVES to shop. Since I HATE to shop, I thought she could shop for me (projects for my cutting machine) and I could do the projects. It’s a lot of fun MOST of the TIME but occasionally I SWEAR she must try to find something to stump (aka embarrass) me as I fumble along LIVE.
Well, tomorrow I will be going through this project on YouTube around 1pm est. I hope you will join me!!!
I love using FREE images to create really fun embellishments for my cards! This one is soooo cute that I wish I had made a mirror image of her and created a shaped card using her. I bet the kids that we make cards for (our charity that our Facebook Group loves to give to) would be thrilled to get these cards!
Anyway…..here they are. The link to the free digi stamp is below the video.
Are you tired of purchasing svg files and want to create your own?
Betsy, from our Patreon group, had written the following to me:
Dear Patty Anne,I don’t know what I am doing wrong?? I am trying to make an SVG of this logo, but have had lots of trouble. Once I finally thought I had gotten it (for the most part), when I sent it to Cricut, the are a bazillion pieces to the project. Obviously, I have not done things right! I am sending the original jpg file and then a link to my file I made……. don’t know if you can make any sense of it… I guess I just need help in step by step of how to do it… I really thought this would be easy…… NOT.Any help would be greatly appreciated (when you MIGHT have time….. it is not urgent by any means. I would really just like to know the steps so I can do it… that’s the frustrating part… I thought this one would be easy….. sheesh.Thank you so much for all you do and the amazing classes you offer,,,, you are wonderful!
Linda, over on our Facebook group, asked ‘How do you add patterns into Silhouette Software?”
This video will show how to add jpg, jpeg or png images into the Pattern Library. If you have a .eps file instead, I will show how to use them as well.
Who doesn’t love freebies that we can use with our Cricut machines or Silhouette Cameos? I know I sure do! Just found these freebies and thought they were soooo cool that I had to share. The video below shows how to use them for both Cricut and Cameo.
Here is my affiliate link to the freebies. https://www.creativefabrica.com/ref/235685/

- Have you ever wished that someone could be right by your side as you MASTER die cutting machines? We will be there!! We will have Cricut Explore Machines, Cameo 3 and Cameo 4.

- Want to learn to create absolutely stunning cards? We will teach you AND supply EVERYTHING you need to create them! (Again, all materials provided!)
- Want to learn how to successfully use the Easy Press as you make ‘gifts’ for yourself AND other ‘gifts’ to donate to charity?
- Are you tired of buying svgs? Learn to create them so you will NEVER need to purchase them again. Yep, it’s true!*
- Want to get together with like minded friends for 3 days of uninterrupted crafting and LOTS of LAUGHTER? (Did I mention…. make new crafting friends?!!)

We are soooo excited about this event especially since it is only $350 which includes all of the above AND FOUR CLASSES…..
……Actually we may be adding a 5th class which will be taught LIVE for us via the internet by our very much loved friend and card-maker extraordinaire who resides in the UK.
If you have any questions about the fab Retreat, please email us at TeamPattyAnne@gmail.com and either Tammy or I will be happy to answer them!
*WE WILL BE USING THE SILHOUETTE STUDIO SOFTWARE FOR THE CLASSES which is perfect if you use a Cameo at home. BUT you may ask…..what if I don’t have a Cameo and I use a Cricut Explore or a Cricut Maker? You will learn how easy it is to use the Silhouette Software WITH YOUR CRICUT AND DESIGN SPACE. It is truly game-changing – I PROMISE! You can get the software by clicking here.
We hope to see you there! Space is very limited as we want a small group so that you will have one on one help as needed! Reservations are open NOW! To reserve your space, send in the down-payment as listed in the brochure below. First Come/ First Served.
I really do believe this! With Silhouette software I can do soooo much more with my Cricut machine (and of course with my Silhouette Cameo 4).
If you haven’t tried it yet, what is stopping you? Seriously. Next best thing since sliced bread???? LOL Kinda kidding BUT I really do love the software.
Here is how you can make fabulous larger than mat images for you CRICUT. This video shows a step I did not go over in my prior video…that of saving the cut pieces FOR CRICUT.
I get lots of questions and requests for videos. This one came from Dora as a YouTube Comment. YES, I do try to respond to EVERY comment!
Anyway, she wanted me to show how to do a larger than mat print then cut using my Cameo machine (similar to the one I had done for Cricut).
Sooooo, here it is. I hope you enjoy!!
